Meringues can be a little intimidating, can't they? Sure, they're a cookie by technical standards. But they're light as air, somehow crunchy and delicate at the same time - they're a whipped egg white confection. Maybe most daunting of all, they're French. *gasp* I'll be the first to admit that French cuisine is a little intimidating (hell, it's already "cuisine" instead of just "cooking" or "food"), but meringues are one instance where they're surprisingly easier than you might think. If they weren't, they certainly wouldn't be showing up on my blog. You have my word on this one. And look, they can also be whimsical. They don't have to be fancy-schmancy. Yes, I'll say it: They can be the F-word. Meringues can be fun.
So go for it. Have a little fun. Cook up a little love. Click "Read More" to view the recipes and photo instructions. xoxo
